“I love lasagna but am not too crazy about freezing the leftovers. I also hate boiling the noodles so I made this recipe for a fast and yummy lasagna for DH and myself. It is made the day before so it simplifies the meal the next day. It can serve four but around here ,,,, mmmmm.... uhhhh, oh well...... This is as easy as can be and the ingredients can be what you like.”
1hr 20mins
1 casserole with leftovers

  4. Layer noodles for the second layer in the opposite direction, add 1/3 of the filling on top and then more sauce. Repeat until the pan is full.
